Thales provides security at new Muscat airport terminal

MUSCAT, August 12, 2018

Thales, a global technology leader for the aerospace and transport sector, has played a pivotal role in helping secure the new terminal at Muscat International Airport.

The highly modernised terminal, which opened in March this year,  is expected to handle the 17 per cent increase (roughly 20 million annual visitors) in passenger arrivals per annum. For this reason, the Ministry of Transport and Communication of Oman selected Thales to deploy its state-of-the-art security technologies.

The technologies delivered by Thales focus on the Airport Operation Control Centres and include an advanced perimeter intrusion detection system, video surveillance system with video analytics, access control, screening equipment, E-gates, security checkpoints, as well as a full Airport IT suite that manages airport operations supported by an information broker to handle integration and communications between systems.

The infrastructure is complemented by fully redundant data centres, including the server farms and the storage area network, access and backbone network as well as trunked radio systems and network security appliances to ensure high performance, reliability and quality of services.

All systems provided by Thales at Muscat International Airport have gone through a total of 45 operational readiness tests, incorporating over 26,000 participants, successfully meeting and surpassing all expectations and standards.
“We are delighted to have partnered with Muscat International Airport to meet the needs for integrated security and operations protocols at the new airport. Through our industry-leading solutions, we are ensuring efficient operations and the safety and security of the overall infrastructure as well as that of the passengers. We’d like to thank the Authorities in Oman, the Ministry of Transport and Communication of Oman (MOTC) and Public Authority for Civil Aviation (Paca) as due to our partnership we are able to continue supporting their efforts in the development of major infrastructure projects within the country.” Roger Daix, vice president of Thales Middle East.
This successful implementation is the latest in a long list of projects confirming Thales’s position as a leader in Airport Master System Integration and airport security and operational solutions. Thales secures some of the most high-profile state-of-the-art critical infrastructures within the Mena region, such as the airports in Dubai and Doha, the new commercial port in Doha and oil and gas sites in Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Iraq and Eurasia. - TradeArabia News Service
